The town planning of Erice's oldest part is primarily medieval in character, with little squares and narrow winding alleys opening onto lovely courtyards full of flowers. In Erice there are more than 60 churches, including those of San Martino, San Cataldo, San Giuliano and San Giovanni Battista, which every
summer resound with medieval music, revived by world-famous musicians
during a festival called Settimana di musica medioevale e rinascimentale. The Cordici Museum in Piazza Umberto I is well worth a visit in the hall there is a
painting by Antonello Gagini, the Annunciation.
